The Carrera S was tested against the Corvette Z06 and the V10 powered Dodge Viper. The Z06 also earned an “Excellent” score while the Viper posted a “Very Good” score, but the 911 rose above them.

“The 911 wowed us enough with its acceleration, handling, and braking for us to rate it our top sports car,” said David Champion, senior director of ‘Consumer Reports’ Auto Test Center. “The 911 is also easy to drive, but its much less expensive Boxster sibling performed almost as well.”

The article stated “The distinctive 911 is the epitome of agility and refinement in sports cars, yet it is relatively practical. The 911 Carrera S is powered by a 355bhp, 3.8L horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine that delivers excellent acceleration and a respectable 20 mpg on premium gasoline. Its six-speed manual transmission is easy to shift and has close ratios for responsive performance. Handling is the 911’s forte. The steering is very precise with excellent feedback. The brakes rank among the best CR has ever tested.”

Say it all really.
